Karen,

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Have only had machine 6 weeks (of which 3 weeks we were away) and am really disappointed with this purchase:

1. When recording, options given to select HD version if applicable - if say 'no', still records both versions anyway.

2. Remote control is incredibly frustrating and slow to respond - when pushing buttons, often nothing happens. Then push again and not only does it do what you want, it often does something else as well.

3. Even though selecting whole series to be recorded, it is random about which programmes it records (have just returned from hols and it has missed many of the scheduled recordings).

4. Not easy to set up initially - have lost surround sound on TV.

Protracted system to record . Going back to the start for each

Easy menu's to follow. three tuners.

Has frozen twice and powered itself off, all resulting in loss of recordings. Remote buttons not very sensitive and having to repeatedly press same buttons to get desired action.

Bob, Birmingham

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Moving to a non-cable area so needed a replacement for the Virgin TiVo. The Humax will quickly pay for itself in rental savings. It too has more than two tuners so it's rare that you'll be unable to record due to clashes. The record quality is excellent and the menus are intuitive.
Bad points:
Only get Freeview channels but probably covers 90% of what I wanted to watch. Recorded programs are shown as large icons rather than a much clearer list on the TiVo. Series link recordings select the newest recordings by default, not the earliest, so you have to manually select and OK the oldest episode.

BRIAN, HULL Honest review see internet

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
High quality recording, three tuners, quiet operation.
Bad points:
Had this now for four months.Worst remote control and on screen EPG ever designed. On/off LED red either off or when recording so you do not know which. Previous Humax recorders had the best EPG and remote possible, why did they change to this and ruin a superb recorder. A new software version from Humax should be compulsary.
